Interlude


All's quiet today. I recommend some good reading for today.

P.S. Who's in this photo: baby Lucia or baby Alkelda?

You're really gonna make this hard on me. LOL. CUTE, CUTE!!! My guess is that it's you, judging by the quality of the pic. Then again, I'm so weary I couldn't tell a tamale from tofu right now.

I've missed soooo much your last few posts. Once I get my sillygirl self rested I PROMISE to read.

xoxo! ~ Lady K

Lady K: You're right. But seriously, if I were able to alter the quality of my baby photos, you would be hard-pressed to tell the difference between Lucia and me. Don't worry about catching up on posts. Once you're settled, send me an email asking me to give you my favorite posts of July, and I'll send you links.

Like Lady K I had already guessed that the photo was of you - not because of the picture quality but the giveaway bald patch on your head!

Robin Brande said...

I was going to guess you. I recognize the hairstyle. (By the way, your hair really did grow in as you got older, huh?) (Wait, is it that way with all babies?)

Alkelda the Gleeful said...

YP: I'm guessing that bald spot meant I was a good sleeper. Lucia never had that bald spot. Ahem.

Robin Brande: The hair usually does grow back in. And then, if you're a guy especially, it falls out 30 years later.

Before looking at the comments, I'm going to say Alkelda, as if it was Lucia, I doubt you'd dare put up a photo of your baby, sleeping on her tummy, with a cat in the cradle. Modern Moms would freak out on you. People were more laid back about that stuff 30 some years ago.

(For the record, my kids all sleep on their tummies, no matter what I do.)

You are So CUTE.

Alkelda the Gleeful said...

Bluemamma: Ah, the moms of 30 years ago... when you could drink a gin and tonic during pregnancy and it was okay because, get this, "the alcohol didn't cross the placenta.":)

When Lucia was a wee baby, our cat Mercedes jumped into the crib. She immediately jumped out again, wild-eyed, and never tried that stunt again. Mercedes is a scaredy-cat in the true sense of the term.

LSM: I want to hold me when I was a baby!

Love the picture. So, so precious.

So incredibly sweet! I want to hold you as a baby (is that goofy or what!!)
